Christmas is said to be the most we most wonderful time of the year, right? Well, at least according to the song! While Santa will take care of the little ones’ gifts, what do you buy someone who has everything? Here, we look at some interesting ideas to help you spread the Christmas cheer:
Hot air balloon ride
Okay, so it’s not exactly suitable to go up in the gas cylinder-powered transport during the winter months. However, this is a gift that can be redeemed later on in the year and is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to tick off the bucket list. While it could be a bit pricy, there are deals to get yourself up in the air for close to £100, with take-off spots all around the UK. To make it that extra bit special, why not book a trip to watch the sunrise?
It you are looking to treat a motor enthusiast, why not book them a track day in their favourite car? There are many track day experiences available up and down the country with a selection of motors available to quench even the biggest thrill seekers’ thirst for excitement. Rev their engines as they sit behind the wheel of some of the finest automobiles known to man.
Are you looking to buy something for a person who loves survival programmes on the TV and always believes that they are well equipped to take part? Do they watch Bear Grylls’ The Island and consider applying? If so, send them on a weekend’s survival course first and see how they fare. Let them battle the conditions and fend for themselves in the wilderness. They will learn new survival skills and really test their mettle.
Floatation tank therapy
This relaxation chamber is much more than just an expensive bath! It’s full of Epsom salts which are renowned for their health and beauty benefits. So, why not present the gift of stress relief this Christmas, thanks to this pod’s magnesium content. The soothing music that plays for the hour-long session allows the recipient to drift into a near-meditative state of calmness which washes all the negativity away.
Name a star
If you don’t have a huge budget, consider spending just £10 on a truly stellar gift. With a ‘name a star’ present, you’ll be able to choose a name to be registered in the Intergalactic Star Database which will then have a unique number solely for the recipient. It’s a gift that is out of this world – literally!
For those among us who enjoy a good old-fashioned sing-along, you should look no further than the Lucky Voice karaoke kit. From £60, your lucky recipient can sing to their heart’s content with thousands of tracks available. It’s a great gift to be able to pull out when you are entertaining. See who would be the next X Factor winner, and who Simon Cowell would throw his straight-to-the-point put downs towards.
If you are looking for a gift that doesn’t require the recipient to put in much effort, how about treating their sweet tooth? For approximately £24, you can purchase a personalised Haribo tree! With a chocolate stalk and an abundance of the sweet manufacturer’s finest jellies, this 25cm tree is entirely edible. It could be the perfect accompaniment for the recipient to take to work to save them venturing to the vending machine.
So, that’s that! A quick guide to what to buy someone who has everything! Remember, Christmas is a time for giving, so spend every moment you can with your loved ones and enjoy the festive period!
